In addition, we testify to the anti-Christian and destructive character of various other cults that have arisen on the basis of the "New Age" movement, theosophy, anthroposophy, the teachings of Rerikh (Eastern Rerikh Society, Siberian Rerikh society, Urals division of the "Peace through Culture" international association, "Choose your future" national movement, etc.), astrological and UFO cults, neopagan and nativist cults, witchcraft, wizardry, neoshamanism, Luciferism and satanism.

We are talking about the impermissibility of imposing upon students in school and institutions of higher education occultic, magical, and amoral ideas and practices under the guise of various kinds of pseudoscientific disciplines (valeology, "Foundations of Activity of Life in Educational Space," various pseudopsychological classes, etc.). Even more, the school cannot be a place for propaganda of pseudoreligious sectarian doctrines. (tr. by PDS, posted 17 December 2002)
